	Yeah. Sometimes I read a little bit of Wikipedia's "Esoteric 
Programming Languages" page, and some of them just leave me in awe. 
Brainfuck (and its variant Ook!) and INTERCAL ("GOTO is considered 
harmful, so we removed it -- INTERCAL uses COME FROM instead") are 
already quite impressive, but the very idea of Befunge makes my brain 
want to explode. Especially that extension to the language that allows 
one to write N-dimensional programs. :D
